Re: No posts in here!

Don't make me add a non-standard pronoun ban to the rules. I don't really care if you self-identify as a lamp. :shock:

Cobalt 343?

I was looking at old models in some of the Cobalt brochures and stumbled across the 343. I’m thinking if we do have a meetup, Bigblock could pick up a used one cheap and keep the rest of us entertained. Owners say they were good for about 80mph, but Cobalt quality and very stable. http://www.yachtwo...

Re: Forum updates

Aslan, I think we’re sticking with Phpbb for now, which has a pretty big open source community. I’ll play it somewhat by ear, but it probably won’t become one of those forums where the features overshadow the people and content. In the first three years the site had made enough to pay for about an h...

Re: Cobalts and blistering?

Re: Buying a New cobalt cs3 any recommendations?

The wonky dash and lack of a captains seat for the passenger pushed us from thinking about a 220 to a 210. Pretty happy with our choice.

BBP, true enough, but mine lives in a huge building on someone’s hobby farm 20 minutes north of the city.

Re: Opinions on 2004 240

It has the newer style dash, which is nice. I’ve seen that one advertised for a while, though - might be able to get it in the high 20s if you check it out and make an offer?
